Let’s roll the calendar back to 2015 in Lewisville, Tx for the Pangos Fr/Soph Camp and my first live look at 2019 Charles Bassey. He was playing on court three in The MAC Facility and within two minutes of the game, he catches the ball on the block, takes a dribble towards the middle of the paint and dunks the ball ferociously with two hands as if he had a issue with the rim. That moment forward, Bassey has been on the texasboysbasketball.com radar and sits atop of our 2019 state rankings. The question the staff has is what if Charles Bassey, one of the top rising juniors in the country didn’t get injured in Virginia. The explosive power forward that resides in San Antonio had sustained a leg injury in his first game on Wednesday and although he tried to play on it in the evening, he could only play 8 minutes. Bassey early on was showing why he is number one in Texas as he finished above the rim in traffic, scored on the block and looked to swat any shot coming from the paint.
We will see plenty of the highly touted Bassey in July so check texasboysbasketball.com for news and notes and recruiting news.
